COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogtown Brown is a tribute to North Little Rock. Embrace what others throw at you – it’ll make you stronger. So it is with our Brown – taking a style more common to ales, we created a Brown but done with a lighter, lager yeast. With notes of malty chocolate, our Brown is something sweet, something smooth and mighty drinkable.

As for one appreciating brown ales, I loved this. Bought a growler of it. Nice dark color. Holds a nice head. Not too bitter. Smells simple. Nice carmel, light chocolate taste. Slightly nutty. I really enjoyed this.

Pours a ruby red color. Nice mocha colored head that lingers well. Great lacing. Slightly cloudy appearance.

Smells of toffee maybe. Woodsy. Fruity. I can’t quite describe it. But it’s nice. I like it.

Taste is toffee, nutty. It’s bitter on the front, and slightly bitter at the end. It’s different. It’s good. I’m not really picking up a whole lot of cofee, but there is some caramel, or maybe honey.

It’s so very smooth, and bold. It’s also creamy. It’s remarkable really. I’d also say that ’s drinkable. It’s rare to find all of that in a beer. It’s a medium-light mouthfeel. It’s hard to describe really, because there’s so much going on there.

Overall, it’s great. Ba da ba ba bah, I’m loving it! My backyard brewer, knocking it out of the park. Good job! But seriously though, it’s better than I expected.

Light body, but with enough grainy sweet malt to get the job done. Solid brown. Would drink again if handed to me

12oz bottle 6/23/14 (Judicious Spirits-Single)-46° in Mug-Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and slight chocolate. Taste of malt, chocolate, and hops. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but was expecting more . It is a bit light.

asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
On tap. Creamy aroma with peanuts and some red fruit. Almost crystal clear orangish amber under an off-white, lacy ring. Delicate brown sugar and peanut flavour with a touch of raisin and tobacco and a gentle bitterness that is in balance with a dry finish. Medium light body, medium carbonation, clean finish.
